The body of a British expat who went missing amid severe flash flooding in Spain has been found, her friend said.
Diana Dudas, 52, was reported missing in the town of Vera, Almeria, after torrential rain hit the area leaving at least 10 others dead.
Her friend Genny Sutcliffe, 56, said Mrs Dudas had a Spanish husband, Javier, and had lived in Spain for many years.
I was told that her body was found washed up in the lagoon. I'm not sure exactly when it was that she went missing, but the heavy rain started on Thursday night.
She said she did not believe Mrs Dudas had any children, but had other family living in the UK.She had her own holistic therapy clinic and hairdressers in the town and had just written a book.
She was absolutely lovely, very warm, very caring and with a great sense of humour.
We are absolutely devastated.
